Fields of Gold

Spring is just around the corner, so we thought we'd share this desktop wallpaper. Forget about heavy coats and fur-lined hats! It's time to start dreaming about warm sunny days, clear skies, and Spring flowers. How sweet it is!

This photograph was taken in the Jura region of France very early in the summer. The field is on private property located just outside the Cascades du Herisson natural recreation area. The overcast skies left the area in lovely, soft shade... notice the rich glow on the tops of the trees in the distance. Jay wanted to fill the frame with flowers as much as possible. He backed his rented Mercedes Benz (SWEET!) as close to the field of the flowers as he could, and then climbed onto the roof. We got some odd looks from drivers who saw us standing up there with our tripods and long lenses... but shooting from the roof of a vehicle gives you several feet of additional height. So... you do what you have to do. (Would you be willing to make a bit of a fool of yourself to get the shot you want?) ;)

We're waiting for the last of the snow to melt, here in Northern Ohio - and we hope that you have flowers and sunshine wherever you are.
